2013 Beauty Blogger Holiday Gift Guide


Who else can you trust more than your favorite Beauty Blogger to help guide your way into gift-giving bliss?  Well I suppose it might be more of a mad-dash with only 8 left days until Christmas now – but have no fear!  Today I’ve got some some product favorites dubbed gift-able by your favorite beauty know-it-alls to help guide you on your way!


• OCC All Star Mini Lip Tar Set •

Kristen from Atlantan Beauty shares swatches and her experience with the richly pigmented Obsessive Compulsive Mini Lip Tar set still available at Sephora.  Pigmented to the max, if your lips haven’t been kissed by a Lip Tar yet, you are missing out!


Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glacé  Bare Nudes •

You know it’s a good one when a beauty blogger buys a backup!  Jessica from Beautezine dubs this mini lip set in Bare Nudes as the best of the season.  She loves them all, but puckers up for Pout, her backup shade of choice!


BH Cosmetics 10 Color Professional Blush Palette

Beauty by Arielle discovered how much her cheeks craved color when working with this professional blush palette by BH Cosmetics – be sure to check out why she was pleasantly surprised!


e.l.f. Holiday Beauty Book in Party •

Beauty by Krystal discovered a holiday jewel at Walgreens with this holiday palette from e.l.f. cosmetics.  She shares fabulously pigmented swatches plus a beautiful holiday look as well in her feature!


May Lindstrom the Complete Skin Experience

Becca from The Beauty Sample experiences the ritual that is May Lindstrom skincare when she shares her thoughts and experiences on this skincare set that is meant to entice the senses.  This gift is perfect for the skincare lovers in your life who cry, “Indulge me!”


Gelish and Red Carpet Gel Nail •

Amber from Daydreaming Beauty shares some fabulous manicures and her love of gel polishes from Red Carpet and Gelish.  I love her festive green mani with dots with Gelish that would be perfect for the holidays, and her Red Carpet Parisian Chic mani with glitter accent would be perfect for New Years Eve!


Make Up For Ever Ultimate Long Lasting Lip Set

Fair-warning my friends… you just might get a little twitchy with jealousy once you spy the amazing set that (was) the glorious long lasting lip set swatched on the beautiful Arianne from Glitter Geek.  This set just sold out online at Sephora *kicks self* but I still wanted to share her post since the Aqua Rouge and Lip products can be purchased separately! GORG!


Tweezerman Slant Tweezers, Coastal Scents 88 Color Palette

Silvana from Glitz Glam Budget shares two beauty favorites that are perfect staple gift ideas!  Everyone could use a pair of Tweezerman tweezers (I know I swear by them!) and the Coastal Scents 88 Color Palette is a classic gift, perfect for a creative artist to dream up makeup looks all year long!


Julie G. LE Frosted Gumdrops Holiday Collection

If you are dreaming of sugar plums during the holidays you just might want to add some in the form of these sparkly textured polishes by Julie G., available at Jessie’s Girl.  The sweetness gets even better when you view Hello Miss Niki’s swatches of this collection – the best part is that they are all so affordable, so putting this on my wishlist isn’t giving me any guilt-trips!  Hooray!


Caudalie and Bodhi Gift Sets •

Sunny from Mostly Sunny has your whole body covered this holiday season with gift sets from bodhi and Caudalie.  Read what Sunny thinks of her favorite Caudalie Moisture Cocoon Set, Caudalie Hand Cream Trio and for the aromatherapy aficionado, a Bodhi body set!


LORAC Pro to Go PaletteElizabeth Dehn for One Love Organic Winter Glow Set •

The stunning Taylor from My Lucite Dreams shares with us her love of the LORAC Pro to Go Palette and creates a beautiful look, sealing the deal that palette is the perfect travel companion over the holidays!  If you have a gift-recipient who would swoon at the thought of a new skincare set, Taylor has reviewed a piece from the Winter Glow Set by Elizabeth Den, and she’s loving it for her dry skin!


Holiday Face Palettes

Rica from The Office Chic shares with us the perfect holiday face palettes to get “fairy lights” skin – and who doesn’t want to look like a fairy this time of year, am I right?!  The hint of color with Giorgio Armani, the mystical glow from the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, and the buttery sheen from Marc Jacobs – YES please!


Urban Decay NAKED Palettes

One, two, three… ways to get Naked and Alison shows us the way on 10amBeauty!  Check out her stripped down post sharing with you swatches of all three palettes.  Dazed and confused by all three Nakeds?  Alison shares her thoughts on just how NAKED you really need to get (or do you?!) with the Urban Decay Naked, Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes!


Zoya Naturel Collection

Marisa from Polish Obsession shows off her gorgeous digits and shares with us the hottest neutrals collection of 2014 you have ever seen with the Zoya Naturel Collection!  This collection screams classic, sexy, and work appropriate all at once (am I confusing you yet?)  Go take a look!


Too Faced Spring 2014 •

The Too Faced Spring Collection is here just in time for holiday gifting!  If you are a fan of anything resembling the addiction that is chocolate O.O then head on over to Vampy Varnish where your mouth will water like none other!  Kelly also teases us with more pieces from the spring collection – deliciousness for the cheeks, lips and eyes – you won’t want to miss it! (See VV for release dates – some are available this week!)

WyoSparkles-Gift-PicksSmashbox Master Class Palette2

Janine and Kristi from WyoSparkles share the beautiful mega-face palette – a perfect makeup gift that covers all of the bases – eyeshadows, highlighter, blush and even eyeliner are all inside this amazing palette so you don’t have to piece together anything!


Freeman Masks

Need a last-minute “You’ll thank me later” stocking stuffer?  Miranda has you covered with her feature on the Freeman Masks that offer a wide variety for all skin types.  Best of all, you can pick them up at your local drugstore, which makes it a quick and easy way to whip up a “pamper me” kit for the stressed on your list!

theNoticeClinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Rae from theNotice shares her love and fabulous swatches of the Clinique Chubby Stick moisturizing color balms that must get on your lips (or those of your intended gift-recipient) NOW.  Read her post for why she loves them and if she thinks they deliver on their “intense moisturizing” promise!


VanityRouge-Top-Pick• RBR Provenance Tales •

As dramatic as it sounds (and I can get pretty darn dramatic), no fragrance collection has moved me as much as the latest Provenance Tales unisex fragrance collection from Rouge Bunny Rouge.  At the risk of sounding like a fool, I have to confess my husband and I have determined Embers is “our scent”! (I’ve prepared myself for the *gags* and *awwws* now! ;) )
